Additional Information

I think this is a Clipper of some kind, and these pics don't do it justice, it is a good looking watch. I don't think it has ever been serviced, there is no indication that anyone has ever opened the case, in fact, it was a bit of a pain to get it open due to age and corrosion. There isn't a mark on the movt anywhere to suggest it has ever been touched, a bit concerning, considering it appears to be well worn.

Bracelet as recieved is a half expansion JB Champion that looks like it might be original?

It will get the full CTR and polish, and I should mention that the  bezel does not have any texture like on some clippers of the same period. It is simply a polished stainless case. 

It is difficult to make out in the pic, but the dial says 'Automatic'.

Possible Bulova Jet Clipper from 1969

All stainless steel case and caseback, dated M9. Approx 31mm diameter N/I crown. Black dial with silver and luminous hands and markers (may be original, as the case showed years of grime before being cleaned). Has an 11BLAC 17-Jewel automatic movement dated M8. Crystal removed for photos.

Closest ad I could find is a 1966 Jet Clipper that comments on a black dial; not sure if this same named model was still being made in 1969, or using another name.

Additional Information

Picked this up in the 'parts' bin of a dealer at the Ohio NAWCC regional last month. Was hoping that the inside was going to be a USA made automatic movement, but it is one of the Bulova Swiss make Autos.

Movement was a bucket of rust: The mainspring (sealed barrel) and the whole of the auto module was unsalvageable. Parts movement was procured with same L8 stamping so, it is good to go. Case has the past owners initials on the back and his last name and what I guessing is his military serial number on the inside in neatly done script along with some watchmaker's notes. Images are post-COA.

Also found an advertisement for the watch and a scan is attached. I don't see this one in the archives. Watch seems to be a 1958 'Jet Clipper'.

Cheers!

Additional Information

Here is a pic of grandpaws watch that was passed down to me. It has  m3 on back which is a 1963 and seriel # is 407785. It is anti magnetic and shock resistant, and self winding. I dont think it has ever been serviced, however the number nine is upside down. I would really like to know how that happened because it doesnt look like it has been moved. It appears perfectly aligned. Would like to know what model,how much it cost new, how much its worth now and if a schematic or repair manual is available for it. Thanks E

EDIT: Changed to Jet Clipper 2012/07/28
